I’m only a beginning beader, but I love the quick gratification that comes from stringing some lovely natural stone or mineral beads onto wire; crimping a clasp at the ends. (Unlike sewing, there’s no tricky measuring, cutting, pinning, checking hems, etc.!)
The bottom one is rose quartz, freshwater pearl, and Czech crystal, made for my sister awhile ago. The rest are others I've made for her. She is the biggest beneficiary of this hobby of mine, being one of the few people I know who regularly wears chunky necklaces. She also has lovely green eyes that always complement the natural mineral colors of the beads.
Am taking another wire class this week; am quite excited about it!
